National School-to-Work Opportunities Office, Washington, DC.
This bulletin presents strategies that school-to-work practitioners can use to implement comprehensive and effective career development programs. These strategies are described: career development as an integral and interdependent program; team counseling; new roles for career and guidance counselors; sequence of comprehensive activities; connections to labor market information; career and computer laboratories; and individual education and career planning. The next section describes three effective practices: a comprehensive career development program operated by Sabino High School, Tucson, Arizona; "Education Cones," which connect academics and work beginning in the early grades in the Weber County School District, Utah; and a systematic guidance program that enables students to develop Employability Development Plans in the Van Buren Vocational-Technical Center in Lawrence, Michigan. Contacts and addresses for these programs are provided. The bulletin concludes with a listing of 15 organizations that can provide further information on the topic. Brief summaries describe the organizations' focus and activities. (YLB)
